    How many folks have experimented with various products to fix paint loss on MAC glass?

    I've seen Rust-Oleum High Glass Enamel mentioned, as well as Testors Gloss Black Enamel?

    Between the two, which is best? And are there any other types of paint that an even better match than these?

    I used to mix various blacks to get as close as I could, given the sun exposure the particular faceplate was subjected to over the years.

    I have an MX110 with a few small holes in the paint here and there. If there hasn't been a whole lot of sun exposure, what do you recommend?

    Also - what causes the paint loss on the glass outer faceplates on the MX110?

    I don't remember the name of the other model paint other than Testors, but that's what I used at the shop and at home very effectively. It seemed to flow off the brush better. The name started with a P. Checked the internet I guess its no longer available. Pardon me!
